A while back, Apple released the third betas of iOS 14.7, iPadOS 14.7, macOS 11.5, watchOS 7.6 and tvOS 14.7. Apart from that, Apple has already announced a new set of software at WWDC 2021 already. So, if you were thinking Apple is out there chilling and doing nothing at all, you would be mistaken.
We are yet to see for how long Apple will keep on seeding these security updates. But given it is been a good while Apple has been doing it, we are assuming that this is a practice Apple will stick with for a long time to come.
